How can you be so sure man? Just because some travel organiser said so?

What you see today in Abu Dhabi and Dubai is modern royalty.....They have all kinds of things to spend on other than just emphasizing that they are royals.
I bet even if we were given all that money we would lead a life like that.And it would be hard for someone to even make out we arent royals.

The pictures posted here....especially the one with the cars in front of the palace are actually pictures of the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi and those cars are used by the hotel to chauffeur their customers around.

Umm... I hate to break this to you guys but AFAIK, this isn't the Sheikh's car but it belongs to Mohammad bin Sulayem, a famous rally driver in the Gulf. I'm new around here but i'm sure there must have been atleast one thread on bin Sulayem's car collection on team-bhp! He loves his cars and has modified some wild stuff, like plonking an SLR engine into an SLK which beat an (his own) Enzo in a drag. He has an F40, F50 AND an Enzo. CLK-GTR, XJ220, Porsche Carrera GT are his other toys. He doesn't seem to buy anything short of a supercar.

Jaguar had an XJR in Frankfurt with the same sort of treatment in 2006 I think, it was supposed to show off their new all aluminium XJ. It is NOT silver.

and can someone please tell me what a GTI 'WR6' is?

Now that's what I call a Chrome paint job. The one on the Govani's SL55 SUCKED big time. It was pretty 'wannabe'.

I remember distinctly when the A8 was revealed to the world at a motorshow. Since the car was a world first in terms of an aluminium space frame chassis and all aluminium skin, pioneering some high tech on aluminium welding etc the car had been buffed to a shine like the car in the pictures. This looks identical to that car.

It just might be an unpainted A8 buffed to that finish by Audi themselves.
